Please join the Family Resource Network for an afternoon of fun at Neahwa Park! There will be multiple heats of duck races throughout the afternoon. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place finishers in each race. At the end of the day all ducks will be entered in the championship race for a chance to win the grand prize! Other community agencies will be set up in the park as well with fun activities for families. Refreshments will be available for purchase from the Oneonta Outlaws Concession Stand.
The Family Resource Network is excited to have the Magic Paintbrush Project joining us at our Duck Derby from 12-2pm with a fun activity for families. There will also be a DJ on site for entertainment. The FRN support group will be offering free facepainting, games and selling baked goods. Check back for more details as additional agencies are added to the event roster.
While Ducks can be purchased the day of the event, they can also be purchased in advance at the Family Resource Network located at 46 Oneida Street, Oneonta. Ducks are being sold for $5.00 each or 6 for $25.00.
Money raised by the Duck Derby will benefit the Family Resource Network Support Group and Legacy Resource Fund. FRN's support group will use the funds raised towards the cost of its monthly meetings as well as to send families to conferences and trainings. The Legacy Resource Fund provides families raising a loved one with special needs financial assistance for expenses such as the cost of travel to a distant hospital, the purchase of assistive technology, or the cost of a conference related to the family member's special needs.
